    1. Four separate adult friends of mine who've experienced horrific abuse cried over this book. I did, too. It is undoubtedly the most cathartic children's book I've ever read.The most popular reviewer of this book, who observes in passing that it's "goodhearted and kind" (even as, for example, "The Chronicles of Narnia" are *somewhat* Christian) finds it prosodically defective and theologically muddled. My reaction to that critique (in a comment, which I've decided to relocate) was the following:Yo [...]

    2. is an enchanting book. If you are looking for something outside the old standbys of , ,(do you sense a theme here?) then give "Gargoyles" a try. I read this to my son time and time again as well as the others mentioned, and he loved it.The images are beautifully done with color drenched in evening colors, and the poetry is sweet and simple.Having read some of the other reviews, I was interested that some people used this as a book for children that had been bullied or felt different. Makes sense [...]

    3. Wow! This book pulled at my heart's strings. I definitely wasn't expecting that when I picked it up. This would be an amazing book for any student who is struggling with feeling down about themselves or feeling outcasted. I love the way the angels "came to the rescue". The author is honest and it is different from most "kiddy" books that are mostly colorful and happy. This book encourages us to accept one another and consider the beauty in ourselves.

    4. A Pilkey picture book few know about due to this popular humorous tales for kids. This is a beautifully illustrated book about the gargoyles and how they came into being and how they fly through the city at night. Adults will recognize classic art in some of the illustrations and smile at the flow of the narrative as they read it aloud, or to themselves. I don't know about child appeal but this is my all time favorite Pilkey title.

    5. Gargoyles are people too- they have feelings, a mysterious past, and good hearts- just what I always suspected about the little devils.

    6. No one would ever guess that the author of the Captain Underpants series had such glorious poetry in him. But he does.

    7. Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuv this book. Read this book to three of my various classes in various years. All three times my teacher and a few of my classmates started crying. I remember my dad and I used to sit on the couch and he would help me read it (I was still fairly new into the reading game >.< ) Still go back and reread it on occasion. I've in fact killed three copies of it.

    8. So happy I found this title while sorting shelving carts at the library! What a beautiful story with an even more beautiful message. And the pictures are exquisite! It definitely makes me miss the cathedrals of Europe.

    9. I bought this book for my nephew many years ago; I then went out and bought another copy for my own bookshelf and sometimes take it out and read it, especially when I'm feeling down about myself. The illustrations are beautiful, as is the message.

    10. This book is a glory to read and an inspiration to me every time I open the pages. My young children love it, too. A family favorite!

    11. If you are looking for a beautiful and moving children's book this is the one! It makes me teary eyed each time I read it.

    12. Lovely story, lovely verse, beautiful illustrations. One of my all time favorites. My eyes tear up whenever I read it.

    13. Dav Pilkey is an amazing author/illustrator. He's proven over and over again that he has a wonderful, kooky sense of humor. In this book he shows his sentimental side, with a sweet story and gorgeous, lush illustrations.

    14. My favorite children's book and poem. It speaks to loss, loneliness, trauma and the hope that comes after.

    15. Kid's books are mainline emotions and this is a killer book. If you don't cry when you read it, you got something missing in your heart.

    16. Pilkey’s luminous artwork is the star of this sweet tale of angels providing comfort to all God’s lost and lonely creatures. With soft shading and bold, highly saturated colors, Pilkey creates a world in which darkness is not so scary. The story is told in rhyming couplets of approximate anapestic tetrameter. The meter is irregular and the lines contain many slant rhymes; the effect is jarring considering the otherwise insistent rhythm. The text on each page appears in a bordered box, carryi [...]

    17. Written in detailed and rhyming verse, Dav Pilkey crafts a story of the gargoyles on the medieval churches. This story is fantastical with angels coming down from the heavens to comfort the misunderstood gargoyles. I loved everything about this story from the beautifully flowing text to the colorful illustrations that bring you into the world of the gargoyles and angels. The stained glass windows in the illustrations are radiant as if the church is lit from within giving a sense of hope and comf [...]

    18. A peculiar rhyming story about gargoyles. When first introduced they were used to scare away the things that go bump in the night, but as time passed people forgot that. Instead they saw them as demons and evil spirits. This book is a reminder that gargoyles fly with the angels, keeping everyone safe from harm.

    19. I was surprised to learn that Dav Pilkey was also the author/illustrator of the Captain Underpants books, because this book is where I was first introduced to him. This book is full of beautiful, fanciful illustrations; it is introspective and historical, sad yet inspiring. I especially love the tribute to the painting, "Nighthawks". One of my favorite children's books in our home library.

    20. A lovely book that you'll never believe is by the creator of Captain Underpants. The illustrations are luminous and the story is moving and hopeful.
